Back to College Beauty Checklist


It’s that time of year again. Tax free weekend hustle, Saturday trips to the very packed Ikea, and checking off the last few items on your ever growing “Dorm Room” check list. We are here to help you during this exciting yet stressful time with a list of a couple of beauty items that we can not (and sometimes should not) live without.

Start and End with Good Skincare

We all know now that we should be washing our faces everyday, especially before bed. You can not deny that one of the best feelings is climbing into bed after you have removed all the gunk and grime from the day. But it isn’t just important to wash you face with just any cleanser. You should be washing your skin with a cleanser that is suitable with your skin type. Get to know your skin, it is going to be with you for quite awhile. We gave a few options below for cleanser that are meant for specific skin types.


Hydrate Dry Skin

All Things Lavender

College is stressful, especially your freshman year. Let go of stress with all things lavender. Aveda offers an entire line that is dedicated to relieving stress. Whether you need soaking salts or a rich body creme, we’ll have your self care go-to’s.


Oil Diffuser

Most dorms will not allow traditional candles or Scentsy warmers, so you have to get creative to ensure your dorm room is fresh and welcoming. We suggest investing in an oil diffuser to fill your study space with your custom mixed aromas.
